Grew up living in downtown Pittsburgh most of my life (first 26 years, turn 30 on Friday). Now I live about 40 minutes NW of the city and work downtown.
My main hobbies are Cars (I have a 2008 Corvette, It's away for the winter now so I needed something else to take up my time hence the smoker) and Saltwater aquariums.
My wife just bought me a MES30 Gen 1 for Xmas as per my Xmas list :) We did our first cook on Sunday with 3 racks of Baby Back Ribs that we bought at Costco, smoked over a 50/50 mix of Hickory and Apple. Came out great for a first attempt with the 2-2-1, could have probably used another hour to get a bit more tender but we were starving so we ate them anyway.
My wife bought me an AMNPS package (Comes with 2lbs each of Hickory, Cherry, Oak & Maple) for my birthday which comes tomorrow and I just ordered a Maverick ET-733.
Learned a good bit from browsing these forums already so figured I should start participating.
